What text(s) did you use to go earlier than Oystein of More, father of
Rognvald? By the way according to Orkneyinga Saga the mother of Rollo
was noble born. The mother of Torf Einar his half brother was a slave,
presumably either Scottish or Irish.

I just traced William the Conqueror's genealogy back on the paternal
line to three mythic rulers in Kvenland (Finland) in the 200's AD. After
that it picks up with historically established persons in Norway in the
300's AD. Just keep hitting on the "child" link and you'll get back to
Or start with his father and go back.
I did this to prove he, at least on the paternal side, was Norse. Now
what do think his Y haplogroup would be? I'm betting on R1a. But I doubt
anyone can prove it.
This one purports to go back even further.
What are the oldest human remains to yeild usable Y chromosome DNA?
